Wellness Dry Food

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
For those that use Wellness Dry Food, I have a couple of questions: First, how are your cats doing on it? Second, do you rotate it with any other foods?

The reason I ask is because our five cats eat Wellness Indoor Health (they also Wellness's grain-free canned food). I picked Wellness because the lower phosphorous is better for their mild kidney problems. I'm looking for a similar food that I can use in rotation for some variety.

Thank you in advance!

I use it and have been since the recall. I try not to give them too much dry food. They eat 75% wet and 25% dry most times.

I have no problems with it at all. They are doing fine without any health problems. I use the cans too, they only like the fish flavors unfortunately.

After reading the forums, I have decided to rotate their food because they have been eating the SAME THING for months now.

I have decided to go with Nutro dry and canned for rotation so they will have variety.

these in there senior formulas are low phos , mag and ca, as well as protein which should BE WATCHED in a DRY food
royal canin
nutro


BUT EVAN mild kidney problems the cats should NOT EAT ANY DRY food

My cats stopped eating Wellness Indoor after about 2 weeks. For dry food we are using a mix of Nutro Max Adult (roasted chicken) and Nutro Max Senior right now. We'll be switching to all senior formula when we run out of the adult kibble.

My cats have been on Wellness dry and canned since the recall. They don't like the fish flavored in cans, only chicken, beef or turkey.

Norman won't eat the dry. He used to eat dry when we fed them Eukanuba. He seldom goes to it now, he relies on the canned. He's gained a significant amount of weight since the switch. He's gotten too fat, and I am a bit concerned. He and Oswald share half a can once a day.

Oswald eats about half the amount of dry than he used to. He has maintained his healthy, fit weight despite eating like a horse. He's always hungry and always devours his half can.

I've been trying to get my girls back onto Wellness kitten. They were on it earlier this summer but had to stop because one of them developed tummy issues. Same tummy issues seem to be back which is unfortunate because the only food she isn't sensitive to is Science Diet (had a free sample)

They love the wellness canned...I've only bought chicken for them because I know they like that flavor and I'm afraid to waste my money on another flavor they may not like. I wish I could put this in the rotation more often but it is expensive for a college student, even in bulk.

science diet kitten. first ingredient: ckn by product meal. then ground whole grain corn. I got two 4 lb bags for free from my vet for their first visit along time ago and my budget this month insisted I finally use them. They seem to do well on it (ie no diarrhea and act normal) but I hate the list of ingredients and want something better for them.

I think you may have a NO FISH cat ....

I would suggest something without any fish .... wellness has some salmon....
